Once people start reading (either at the beginning or starting at the 4th book, known as the Gospel of John), people discover that there are things about Jesus Christ that they have not been told. The information is contained only in the New Testament, and it is only available if you read it for yourself.
This edition is better than many of the Electronic editions. It is also based on accurate ancient Greek manuscripts, of which there are 25,000 portions and fragments which were written in Ancient Greek that still exist today, that support this text of the New Testament. And the people who wrote the New Testament knew Jesus Christ personally. They did not wait until after 100 years in order to begin to write what Jesus said. They heard His words with their own ears, and then they wrote this so that we could know and read and learn this.
Find out for yourself what God wants you to know. God is certainly big enough and strong enough to give every true and sincere person, the wisdom and desire to seek Truth, to seek the God of the Universe, and to find the spiritual answers that we are all seeking.
It is much more important to seek the true opinion and teachings that God has, instead of having fear about the opinions of men. Christianity is not something that a person can become, simply by making a declaration 3 times. Each individual must understand what he is deciding, and that decision can only be made according to their FREE will, by their own choice, by their own decision. It is not up to others to agree or disagree with the Free exercise of the human spirit. If any choice to become a Christ-follower
; is made under pressure, duress, force, threat or coercion, then the decision to become a Christian, is automatically NOT valid. IT is God, and God alone, who evaluates the sincerity and heart of each individual, on a personal and individual basis.
God wants people to accept Him because they WANT to. IF GOD WANTED to force everyone to accept HIM right now, God could do that, right now. God could force everyone to accept Him right now, if God wanted to behave that way. God does not behave that way, because God has a different plan. The ways of God are often not the ways that men would chose.
Forced conversions do not work, because they do not change the heart or the conclusions of the people who would be forced. For that reason, God can obviously understand that people were not sincere if they were declared Christians by force. The issue of Free choice reflects an evaluation about what kind of God people are serving. The Christian God is not a God of weakness, but in His strength, He is willing to allow others to perceive Him as weak, if that is their choice or their lack of understanding. True strength does not require followers to force others to follow God. God is able to bring those people to Himself, for those who are truly and sincerely seeking Him.
We should not reject information without knowing what we are rejecting. Our faith in God must be stronger than our faith in men, and our trust in God, must bring us to the point where we understand that He is the one who will encourage us to find Truth, and God knows what each of us is thinking in his mind and heart. God responds to those who are genuinely seeking to find and follow Him.
Finding God is one thing. Following God is another. The first step is understanding what God wants us to know about Him, and about Jesus. The words of the New Testament are the only eyewitness records of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, which were written by the Apostles and Disciples of Jesus Christ. For anyone who wants to know God, this is first place to start.
